I have Windows XP SP2. Whenever a shutdown the system, it shows :
Saving Your Setting --> Logging Off --> Shutting down
And from then it takes about 9-10 mins to shutdown the system, with is unsually very long time to do so.
I have scanned my system twice with AVG, XoftSpy, Ewido Security Suite3.5, and Registry Mechanic.Now there is no trace of any virus, spyware or so.
Unable to understand anything.
Please help.
Regards,
Aashish

You need to get a legal copy of windows. I am sorry, but we cannot help people with pirated copies of Windows. If you purchased this machine unknowingly and were provided with an illegal copy, choose the second option on the above link, report the system builder and Microsoft may provide you with a legitimate copy
